Hi ,

Try to see an ENT soon go to ER if possible because their might be many things that can cause a sore throat for so long .
I know how it feels when one gets a sore throat i am having since 5 months.
And i am fed up taking medicines .!
My right tonsil is swollen a bit. And also so many symptoms .

All the best to you.
